Barnes & Noble Pulls Antisemitic Book Kyrie Irving Shared On Twitter

Kyrie Irving and antisemitic book at Barnes and Noble

Barnes & Noble has pulled the controversial book “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake up Black America” off its shelves … while Kyrie Irving continues to face backlash for promoting it.

Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), commended B&N Tuesday morning … saying the bookseller’s decision to yank the book should set a precedent.

Greenblatt then turned his attention to Amazon, revealing he wrote to the company over a week ago, looking to have a conversation about the book/films presence on the giant retailer’s website. The ADL CEO says he’d like a disclaimer added to the book and film, at the least.

Greenblatt added the book and film “will lead directly to the harm of Jews,” adding Amazon needs to follow B&N’s lead before it’s too late.

Of course, Kyrie landed in hot water after tweeting a link to the controversial film.

The Nets eventually suspended Irving for an indefinite amount of time. He hasn’t played since  November 1 … and it’s unclear when he will return.

Amazon is carrying the book and movie on its website.
